FEEL GOOD FRIDAY and FLASH BACK FRIDAY

Something that really made me happy this week is – comic books – I am joyously happy over comic books. Growing up I read everything I could get my hands on, including comics. My favorite was LIttle Lulu. And I was impressed that you could read classics illustrated and get the jist of a classic so quickly.

My aunt and mentor and godmother forbid comics. Lucky she wasn’t my mother and I could still read them. My aunt’s attitude was enough to keep from embracing comics till now. Now that I know living in others people’s opinions does not make me happy.

I read once that Charles Schultz, the creator of the Peanuts comic strip said, (paraphrased and from the ‘ol memory), that he was a fairly kind of person. He was a fairly good artist and a fairly good writer and a fairly good humorist. I love that he gave permission for kids everywhere to have security blankets like Linus did and still be okay.  I remember the days of it NOT being considered okay that a child was attached to a security object. I thought that one little thing that he did was huge. In the olden days children in hospitals were NOT allowed to have a favorite stuffed animal or blanket or their parents either a lot of the time.

I am a fairly kind of a person and today a very happy one.  Since turning to comics and graphic novels with Script Frenzy, I wanted to get some comics to study. My grocery store doesn’t sell comics but it turns out my library has a lot. I took out a graphic novel and I am in heaven looking at it.

My drawings will be sketchy gesture type line drawings – I think. Here’s a contour drawing I did years ago.

This post is doing double duty as my Flash Back Friday Post with Jennifer at My Crazy LIfe.
